FIRST Robotics Challenge Colorado Regional
These 120lb robots are suspended in the air, and they got themselves there with the help of a teleoperated driver. This years FIRST challenge was all about throwing a frisbee. Well, and climbing this structure. This high school challenge began in January, and the students had 6 weeks to build their robot for this specific challenge.

This is the time of year when all the projects are due (something I should have been doing while I was spectating this event). This is the MECH 202 design competition. It's a class all mechanical engineers have to take sophomore year. I took it last semester, and was not happy with the results, like students in the past. Again, students this year left wishing that these teachers never taught at CSU. But that's a different story. Anyway, here are a few photos.
